Northampton County will begin accepting applications for 2019 Affordable Housing Program (AHP) grants on July 15th . These are limited to eligible non-profits, public agencies, local governments, government authorities and private, low-income housing providers. But for some reason,low-income housing providees are ineligible.
These middlemen can use the grant money to maintain or increase the availability of quality affordable housing for NorCo residents whose annual incomes are below 80% of the household median income for the County using the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Section 8 income limits for 2019.
Applications close September 13, 2019. Details and applications can be found on the Department of Community and EconomicDevelopment’s (DCED) webpage:
The money for this comes from realty transfer tax.
